Mary Beth Meehan

“City of Champions” Installation

In Fall 2011, twelve images from Mary Beth’s “City of Champions” series were installed as large-scale banners in the downtown core of Brockton, Massachusetts. The work resulted in a year of walking tours and formal and informal conversations city-wide, inviting viewers to consider the changing urban identities of a post-industrial American city, and to confront the difficult emotions wrought by such change.

With generous support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities, and the City of Brockton.
